The successful candidate will have a proven track record in media relations, client relationship management, team management and strategic thinking. You’ll have at least 5 years’ experience in a PR agency or in comms/journalism roles, with a strong ability to lead and inspire teams.

You’ll love attending our quarterly team days and, the rest of the time, you’ll excel at helping us create a strong company culture, as well as a lively and collaborative working environment.
  • Training and Strategy Oversight: Overseeing and training account teams, guiding strategy, and joining client calls as the senior strategic point of contact.
  • Service Delivery Monitoring: Ensuring monthly reports are accurate, represent good service, and are within budget.
  • Candid Guidance: Stepping in during difficult situations to provide candid advice and guidance for the team and clients.
  • Client Expectation Management: Strong ability to manage client expectations and act as the lead strategic advisor, while coaching the team in their account management skills.
